I have very mild mitral valve prolapse - no regurgitation and no symptoms since age 15 (I'm now 26). How important is it for me to premedicate for things like going to the dentist? I've had one dentist tell me it's important even for a cleaning and another tell me premedicating is only for invasive procedures like surgery (not necessary for cleanings or fillings). I'd like to know for sure because I'd rather not spend the money or go through the hassle of premedicating (plus antibiotics hurt my stomach), but I want to be safe, too. Thanks!

My doctor said as of last month they recommend AGAINST premedication for dental work of any kind saying it does more harm than good!
